A small section of road near Harriman Lake was closed Tuesday morning after a jogger found several containers that had been used to make methamphetamine.
About 6 a.m., the jogger found the containers, which were filled with liquid, and immediately called the sheriff, said Jacki Kelley, spokeswoman for the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office.
Jeffco’s bomb squad, which was joined by firefighters from the West Metro Fire Department, investigated and determined the liquids were common ingredients in the making of meth.  
Kelley said the liquid had not leaked out of the containers and the items were most likely dumped overnight. There are no suspects at this time.
The Sheriff’s Office closed Nelson Street at Quincy Avenue during the investigation and cleanup of the scene.
